FSD seeks nominees for 2018 Hall of Fame Awards
The Frankenmuth School District is seeking nominations for the 2018 Hall of Fame Awards.
For the past years, the FSD has honored an Alumnus of the Year and a Champion of Children.
“The Distinguished Alumnus of the Year Award lets our community honor and celebrate those who have left the ‘nest’ and used their talents to make their mark with amazing accomplishments,” FSD Superintendent Adele Martin said. “The story of their start here in Frankenmuth and their accomplishments in the world inspires our students, staff members and community.
Equally honored are those citizens who have given of themselves to assist the district’s students.
“The Champion of Children Award is our chance to say thank you to those who give selflessly for the Frankenmuth School District and its students. We can’t do it alone and their support is inspirational,” Martin noted.
Past Alumnus Award recipients were Dr. Craig Maves in 2014, David Hubinger in 2015, Dr. Philip Felgner in 2016 and Wallace Kern in 2017. Past Champions of Children were Doris Koopman in 2014, Gerald Hennessy in 2015, Dr. Harold “Gus” Braeutigam in 2016 and William Fischer in 2017.
The Alumnus Award will recognize and honor a FHS graduate who has achieved professional distinction and/or demonstrated significant community service contributions at the local, state, national or international level.
The Champion for Children Award will recognize and honor an individual whose service has contributed significantly to the wellbeing and advancement of the FSD. Graduation from Frankenmuth High School is not required for the Champion of Children Award.
Applications and guidelines can be found on the district Facebook page or its website, www.fmuthschools.com, following the links.
To nominate a FHS Alumnus or Champion, please provide the person’s name, year the person graduated, a one-paragraph description of the person’s career or service contribution and the nominator’s name and contact number. May 14, 2018, is the deadline for nominating applications.
